First, I do not recommend that you follow the instructions on those
pages for adding new repositories.  It is aboslutely unnecessary.
Debian stretch ships official packages for MaraiaDB 10.1 and unless you
have a specific need to use packges from a third-party, it is best to
steer clear of that.

What specifically is it that you are looking for on the menu?  What are
